Best known for his role in Show of Hands with Phil Beer, Steve Knightley returns to The Met to show off his skills in song writing.
Following the success of last year’s intimate one man show, Steve’s latest outing is intended for anyone fascinated by the art and craft of song writing. Exploring his extensive back catalogue and introducing unheard, new material, he presents the themes and stories that inspire him. In doing so, shows how music and words can become lyrics, chords and notes that meld to create songs which acquire a life of their own.
